Oregon Residential Home Appraisal

Residential Real Estate Appraisals

We appraise every type of residential property found in the northwest. This includes single family residences, townhouses, condos, apartments, mobile homes, planned unit developments and parks, co-op apartments and residential subdivisions.

Appraisals are performed for loan purposes, estate planning, purchases, insurance claims, divorce, sales, diminution in value, insurance coverage, asset review, estate taxes, and fair market rental value, just to name a few.

In this current market, you may be trying to decide whether or not to sell or hold on to your house and rent it until the market improves. What would your house likely sell for on the market today? What amount of rent could you realistically get currently and is that an option for you now? An appraisal along with a rental survey and income approach will answer those questions for you clearly.

We also perform residential appraisals for contamination issues, loss of view, access issues, residential land and estimating discounts for family limited partnerships. All appraisals are professionally performed in a timely manner and at a competitive cost.

Conservation Easement, Charitable Donation Valuation and Litigation Support

We specialize in the valuation of conservation easements, including sales, donations or purchases of a conservation easement property. We’ve valued conservation easements for purchase decisions, possible IRS donation valuation and estate planning. We have experience in appraising standard conservation easements, agricultural easements, and OPAV (Option to Purchase at Agricultural Value) easements. Our clients have included private individuals, established land trusts, and governmental agencies. If you have a question about conservation easement valuation, e-mail us or give us a call; 503-524-7577.

In order for the IRS to accept a value of Real Estate to be donated, an appraisal by an independent certified appraiser is usually needed. Many times we are working with an attorney or tax accountant handling the paperwork for such a donation, but often we are hired independently by the owner making the donation.

Our experience as an Expert Witness lends strong support to the litigation process. We can supply an independent appraisal for the court’s records and back it up with confident Expert Witness Testimony.

Portland Real Estate appraisal

Commercial & Industrial Appraisals

Our experience ranges from small to large office, retail, multi-family and industrial buildings to commercial, industrial and even farm land.

Why do you need an appraisal? If your property is for sale, has lease renewals, is to be purchased or needs financing, an appraisal will determine the current market value or the best lease rates to advertise and can help with negotiations. If your property is to be donated, needs a tax reduction, or needs expert appraisal services for litigation, mediation, insurance value/claims or damage estimates, an appraisal is often required. Appraisals are another very useful and valuable tool for business planning or feasibility studies you can present to your lender, other investors or partners. We know what factors lenders look for in a successful commercial property and we know the Real Estate market.

You can rely on our over 27 years of experience to professionally handle your property appraisal needs and guide you through the process. If you have any questions about the appraisal process or whether or not an appraisal would be useful for you now, we invite you to give us a call!

Estate and Trust Appraisals

Often creating or maintaining a Trust or settling an Estate is a vital and stressful job. As a Representative in charge of a Trust or an Executor, you have been entrusted to carry out the wishes of the deceased to the best of your abilities. We are here to help you with quick response time and with sensitivity to the feelings of the family.

Attorneys, Accountants and Law Professionals can rely on our values when estimating commercial, industrial, multi-family and residential real estate for trusts, estates and probate. We provide professional independent appraisal reports that meet the requirements of the local courts, the IRS, the Register of Wills office and various agencies.

Settling an estate usually requires an appraisal to establish Fair Market Value for both the tangible personal property and real estate property involved in the trust. Most often, the date of death (DOD) differs from the date the appraisal is requested. We are familiar with the legal procedures and special requirements necessary to perform this type of retroactive appraisal.
